Sharing Files ???

by Dawg1306 / January 31, 2007 4:55 AM PST

I wanna be able to make changes to my files on my company's shared drive whenever I make changes to the same ones on my desk top. How can I make this happen? I was able to do this before from laptop to laptop, so I figured, why not from desktop to shared drive?

Can anyone please help???

...the shared drive allows your user to have "full control", it shouldn't be a problem.. Once the desktop is added to the network, open "My Network Places", then find the shared drive and update your files, or copy and paste the new ones to the shared drive.

If you don't have access to the network, then you'll need to contact the system admin to set you up.. Likewise with the shared files.. If you're user name isn't allowed full access, then you won't be able to alter the files on the shared drive.

Hope this helps.
